WHAT'S BIG AND GREEN AND READY FOR A FIGHT?

The BBC reports that there’s no rest for our patent judges. While most self-respecting IP lawyers are off on their summer hols Mr Justice Patten has granted an interim injunction in favour of Dreamworks, the studio responsible for the summer blockbusting film, Shrek 2. The 12 defendants, who remain unnamed, appear to have been offering pirated Shrek 2 DVDs of varying quality on auction websites such as eBay. The official DVD launch date of the film is scheduled for November.

The IPKat says no surprises here really. Everyone knows selling copyright infringing DVDs is naughty and can get you into trouble. He awaits the sport of a potential full trial.
